Bangladesh to train Afghan pilots, civil aviation officials
DHAKA, May 23 (BSS) - Bangladesh will impart training to Afghanistan pilots and civil aviation officials here to give a boost to the war-torn new SARRC member state.
To this effect, an air services agreement would be signed with Afghanistan next month.
This was revealed when Afghan Ambassador to Bangladesh Abdul Rahim Oraz called on Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Lt Col (retd) Faruk Khan at secretariat here.
During the meeting, the Afghan envoy gave a draft copy of the would-be agreement to the minister and it was immediately sent to the civil aviation authority chairman for taking necessary steps, official sources told BSS.
After singing the agreement, Faruk Khan said civil aviation officials and pilots of Afghanistan would receive training at the
country's civil aviation training centre and flying clubs.
The minister hoped that Afghan pilots would be able to get
necessary training on air traffic as presently a good number of private pilot training academies are functioning in the country.
He also proposed the Afghan envoy to send their youth in Bangladesh for getting hospitality training in the tourism training institutes.
